Channel Resources Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 29, 2010) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Channel Resources Ltd. ("Channel" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHU) announces a private placement of up to 4,000,000 units (a "Unit") at a price of CDN$0.08 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company ("Common Shares") and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant being exercisable for one Common Share ("Warrant Share") at an exercise price of CDN$0.11 for a period of 24 months.

This financing is being conducted in addition to the private placement that closed on January 18, 2010 due to increasing investor interest, primarily in the assessment and development of the Company's Lithium / Potash brine portfolio in Alberta.

In connection with the private placement, insiders and associates of the Company will subscribe for all of the Units placed. In a separate transaction the same number of common shares will be sold from the subscribers' personal holdings through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX.V") to third-party investors.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund exploration and pre-development work on its project portfolio, as well as for corporate development and working capital purposes.

Completion of the private placement is subject to execution and delivery of standard documentation and receipt of all required regulatory approvals and consents, including the approval of the TSX.V. Securities issued pursuant to this private placement are subject to a four month hold period in compliance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX.V.
